Yes, you can become a Hadoop expert after pursuing a short term course for the same. As you are already working as a desktop engineer for 4-5 years, you have an idea about basics related to software and hardware, internet and some other basic tools.
So, you experience will support in learning.
There are many private institute offering this course even with good placements. Already working professionals can have weekend classes to continue with the ongoing jobs.
One such institute I have heard about is NIIT, which has many centers and one can select as per his/her suitability.

Hadoop and big data can be learned by anyone who knows Java. And you don't have to be any specific graduation stream for that. Anyone who knows how to program in Java and knows how to use linux can learn Hadoop. It takes few weeks of course in order to learn Hadoop. Most of the online sources have really good course structures. You may want to check out udacity, coursera for the advanced courses in Hadoop. There are local courses but the online courses for that are cheap and also more effective in terms of knowledge. Most of the NIIT, SEED, Aptech courses are nothing but Powerpoint presentation and few lab session. And that is not worth at all.
